Consensus: Rush Hour 3 is a tired rehash of the earlier films, and a change of scenery can't hide a lack of new ideas.

The third installment is so cartoonishly stupid it makes the original look like a classic.

Stephanie Zacharek

There's no doubt that Rush Hour 3 is anything but a mess. And yet there were moments when I found myself laughing giddily at the inanity of it all, and other moments when the picture was so beautiful to look at that I almost forgot its faults.

Joshua Starnes

I hate to use the phrase, "they're only in it for the money," but if any sequel ever exemplified that ethos, it's this one. Ultimately, Rush Hour 3 is a one trick pony whose day has long since passed.

This movie makes a fine replacement for the previous two installments.

The final, and anti-climactic, 'threequel' of the summer has nothing new to say. A staleness pervades the film, despite all efforts to inject freshness and excitement into a tired story.

Although much of Rush Hour 3 is in Paris, it's no French pastry. It's more week-old Happy Meal.

Rush Hour 3 is an awfully spare title for such a big-money enterprise, but an appropriate subtitle like Auto Pilot or Once More For The Cash would have given the game away.

Rush Hour 3 is a blockbuster sequel filmed with the enthusiasm of jury duty and as barren of novelty as a burned-out souvenir stand.

I have never thought I would ever profess to be a Jackie Chan fan. Yet, at the ripe old age of 31 having just seen Rush Hour 3, it appears that I am.

There's not much reason for this film. There's nothing new in it and it's preposterous.

was it inevitable that this franchise would falter so bad? probably. i loved the first two, but while this one had some good action and very funny moments, it… More

Third installation of the unlikely comedy duo. Lee and Carter find themselves in Paris hunting down the triads to save a girl.
Eric Alvarez
Shouldn't have been made. Had bits and pieces of laughter, but struggled really hard to be like the first two films.
Phil Hubbs
Run of the mill, identikit police action comedy, worst than the first two because its just the same and no different, although the first was alright. Tucker is… More

More of the same as the first 2 films but this time ending up in Paris for the finale. Although the franchise is starting to get a little old now, the first had… More
